July 21, 2020 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm
Brigit Stevens
All people in the Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota Conferences are invited to join Rev. Diane Schmitz for conversation. Rev. Diane is an ordained UCC minister and her work focuses on racial equity work with predominantly white churches, schools, and organizations. She will be hosting Brave Space* particularly for white people in our conferences to process, ask questions, and openly dialogue about the events that have been unfolding in our country and why. She’ll help raise up conversation and ideas that address how race shows up at personal, interpersonal, institutional and cultural levels and how we all are called to recognize and interrupt racism.

*Brave spaces invite participants to summon the courage to be authentic, speak openly, take risks, explore, experiment, learn, and change. Brave spaces are created by commitments to stay engaged, to not shy away from the discomfort real learning and growth may require, and to be open to letting go of previous ways of understanding. Brave spaces are not “safe”; they can be challenging. And, they are a needed part of transformational work.

Tuesdays at 12:00pm until 1:30pm CT from June 30th through July 21st.
